Our fences, pergolas and lattice covers can help create privacy for your yard as discussed in the following article from HGTV Remodels.

“When in a garden or on a patio, you want to feel that you’re in an intimate space — in a room not exposed as if you’re in the middle of the driveway or street,” says Risa Edelstein, president of the Ecological Landscaping Association.

That’s not so easy when your back yard looks out on your neighbor’s hot tub, your tranquility is constantly interrupted by road noise or your house sits in a new development with scant tree canopy. Here are some strategies for creating more privacy:

Fences. Privacy settings for fences range from private (solid tongue-and-groove or board) to semi-private (slat, picket, spindle or lattice) to rather public (rail). A topper made of lattice or circle cut-outs makes a solid fence feel less oppressive.

When considering materials, keep in mind the maintenance involved. Wood typically needs to be resealed, stained or painted every few years. Low maintenance options include powder-coated aluminum, vinyl and composite, all available in neutral shades of white, brown, black and green. Check local zoning regulations to ensure you have proper permits and do not exceed height restrictions, which are often lower for parts of the yard visible from the street.

Lattice. Lattice screens are a versatile and easy-to-install building element. They can be employed as semi-private walls on a deck or patio — or as the underpinning for a porch or deck. You can use lattice to corral an HVAC unit or garbage cans. Available in various weaves and grid patterns, lattice partners well with a range of materials and textures including stone, brick and board fence. Flowering shrubs, roses and vines add more privacy as the lattice becomes a textured back drop.

5 Things Your Contractor Wishes You Knew

February 15th, 2012

Have a clear vision of the finished product before you begin.

5 Things US Aluminum Services Wishes You Knew:

US Aluminum Services wants to make sure  every homeowner has a clear vision of the finished product before you event begin with the project!

Planning a remodel is a big commitment that requires extensive research and resources. What can be a difficult, frustrating process doesn’t have to be. Save yourself some serious headaches by seeing a remodel from a contractor’s perspective. When it comes down to it, a good client is an educated one. Get to know these five things courtesy of the contractor:

1. The remodel starts with you.

Homeowners who are indecisive can be very frustrating for contractors. To make the process smoother, have a clear vision of the finished product before you begin. By establishing good lines of communication for your expectations, the process can be both enjoyable and successful.

2. Research is encouraged.

The quickest way to derail a remodeling venture is by not doing your homework. Avoid slowing the process and going over budget by thoroughly researching your project and contractor. Visit job sites, talk to client references or price construction materials to find the right fit for your remodel.

3. It’s a budget balancing act.

Don’t just cut out the pretty pictures — go through the planning process and know how much you’re willing to spend. Finding a balance between spending too much and spending too little will help you come up with a strategy you and your budget can tolerate.

4. Be realistic about timing.

Things that look simple on paper can be time-consuming and costly. From surprising mold underneath the bathroom floor to removing a wall in the kitchen, the key is to be flexible with your schedule. Provide a time frame for the project, but be realistic.

5. Micromanaging slows down the work.

The homeowner needs to be part of the process, but contractors caution against micromanaging. It will take longer to complete the project if the contractor is catering to constant homeowner hovering. Touch base with your contractor every other day to maintain open communication.

How to Reinforce a Privacy Fence…

February 25th, 2011

Shore up those sagging posts with concrete.

If protecting your privacy is worth a little elbow grease, follow these instructions for bolstering your fence.

Materials and Tools:  

trowel
drill
level
2×4-inch board
sharpshooter shovel
rounded shovel
hoe
sledgehammer
hose
dust mask
gloves
safety glasses
drainage gravel
no-mix concrete mix
screws
fencing posts for stakes and support member 

Steps: 

1. Dig holes around the fence posts. Use the sharpshooter shovel to remove small amounts at a time until you have enough clearance to work.

2. Drive stakes into the ground a few feet out from the fence and attach support boards running to the fence. Use the level to move the fence until it’s plumb, and then secure it temporarily with screws.

3. Use a 2-by-4 to tamp the earth around each post.

4. Fill the hole about 1/3 full of gravel, and tamp the gravel down. Fill the rest of the hole with a special no-mix concrete designed for use in postholes. Continue until each posthole is filled. 

5. Mist the concrete with a hose and use a trowel to press concrete around posts. How much water you’ll need to add depends on soil conditions. Follow the concrete manufacturer’s directions. 

6. Cover each hole with soil to hide concrete.
